changed the u.s. approach? >> right, well, obama had said repeatedly that america is a pacific nation. and he's been refocusing foreign policy toward asia. commanders at the pentagon really poured resources towards this region. and obama tried to strengthen economic ties, for example, congress passed a free trade fact with south korea. but mitt romney and others say obama still hasn't done enough on issues such as the currency disparity with china. republicans say his approach to nuclear weapons is misguided. the professor says somewhere along the way, obama got sidetracked. >> like the working without nuclear weapons, he had an idea and this global vision, but middle east was so volatile and promising at the same time. during his administration. and naturally i think he was sort of shifted to that region instead of asia. >> but most americans care most about what happens at home. millions of them are still without work. we'll get the latest numbers on friday and no doubt voters will look to that as a cue to how obama has done. >>> opposition commanders in syria feared government forc
christie, and this man said that obama was doing an outstanding job. >> elections are right around the corner next week, and campaigns have resumed. it is a difficult question to ask, but who has actually profited from the situation? >> for mitt romney, it is a difficult situation because national disaster times are times when politics are supposed to be put aside, so campaigning too early might hurt him, but it is the only thing he can do because he does not have any form of public office. that is why the campaign is putting him back up to speed on wednesday. he already had a campaign stop. for president obama, it is exactly the contrary because every day he seems to be commander-in-chief is better for him where he can do something as a president. his campaign management is taking its time to put him back on the trail, but pundits agree that the whole situation probably helped president obama more than it helped mitt romney. to what extent is quite unclear still. >> thanks for joining us. we will have a report about the election campaign in a little bit. >> airports in new york an
happened in the last couple of years a movement toward the center. i think of it as obama negotiating with himself with an intransigent right which used its power to hold the country hostage, rather than finding common ground. >> so, let's talk about what you did and didn't learn. you've watched the four debates now. do you have any idea of how governor romney would manage to cut income tax rates by 20% without increasing the deficit? or which tax deductions he would eliminate? or specifically, how he's going to create the 12 million jobs he's promised? or what barack obama's going to do in his second term? do you have any sense of that? >> well, in the case of the 12 million jobs, as we know, you don't have to do anything and you'll get 12 million jobs. any number of economists and moody's analytics have predicted that simply by keeping present policies in place, 12 million jobs will be created over that period. so it's not much of a boast. as for the tax policy, my guess is that he doesn't know and he s taxes -- rates by 20%.an wt t 'i love the third person, f tt won't be.heic that'
have lost electricity. barack obama made a direct appeal to people in the hurricane's path. >> the most important message that i have for the public right now is please listen to what your state and local officials are saying. when they tell you to evacuate, you need to evacuate. >> 370,000 new yorkers who live close to the water have already left. city officials have shut down the transit system. businesses and shops have closed. workers are piling up sand bags in front of subway entrances and buildings. >> it's vr important. this is the stop the water from going into the subway. >> irene last year didn't look like this after it hit. >> they expect the storm will pound a wide area for several days. >> sandy has interacted with cold air from the north and it's become a post tropical cyclone. it's not a tropical cyclone anymore but the field of heavy rain and strong winds are expanding and things will get even worse because the center of a former hurricane sandy is expected to move into the new jersey coast. extremely dangerous storm surge combined with high tide could cause flooding. th
. -- sununi is in the attic. >> colby is right, they are putting him out regularly. they are not putting out stavridis or spokespersons that are not speaking with the unspoken. obama had a good line about, on the leno show. >> "it also g -- all goes back when we were playing soccer in kenya." probably the best line i've heard the president delivered in the whole campaign. >> unfortunately, people out there will say, "c, i told you." >> "i did not know that donald trump was kenyan." >> almost at the finish line. see you next week. >> "inside washington" is brought you in part by the american federation of government employees, proud to make america work. for more information about afge and membership, visit afge.org.
